No, not unless you have a 1995 or older Toyota.

No, you can turn the light on and off, but when you exit the utility it goes back to whatever state it was originally. You can register a new set of TPMS sensors, and it shows a MAIN and 2nd set in the listing.

I got this a couple of days ago, but need some guidance.
I have a 2012 Rav4 v6, 4x4 sport with the basic security alarm.
Every time I press the unlock to open the door, there are three sounds. horn buzzer and two beeps.

Now,imagine the same three sound every time I try to unlock for doors. A total of 4 beeps, and two horn buzz.

First, I tried to set the setting to open all doors in one unlock press, but I couldn't get it to work.

Then, I tried to set the warn buzzer to be off... Nothing worked..
As soon as I tired to arm or disarm the alarm would go off.

What made it worse was that, my key fob couldn't turn off the alarm. It kept going off until I use the software to reset the settings and use the key fob afterwards. (the alarm was buzzing while I still have the key in the "on" mode, trying to customize the settings.)

I'll buy the software just for that!

That sounds like just the ticket for the person who is willing to buy TPMS sensors with his winter wheels. I see that Tire Rack charges an extra$220.00 for a quantity of 4 TPMS sensor mounted into one of their tire+wheel packages. Reasonable enough.

My unit is on order, although I plan to stick with all-season tires.

Agreed, that would be the best way to go long term. And the sensors are probably cheaper somewhere on eBay. I suspect you'd have to switch detection from Main to 2nd set and back each time you swapped rims.

Yes! Both of mine are set to disabled, so all I get is 5 beeps for the driver and that's it. And the 1-click open all doors is a must have as well. Also I disabled the 10-second beep when one of the doors is ajar and you try to lock them. It's annoying and stupid.

Thank you

The dealer charges ~$100 to register the second set of TPMS sensors so this will pay the itself several times over.
